A recipe for love


  • One large cup-full of experience
  • One or two generous spoonfuls of sadness, according to taste
  • A large sprinkling of humour
  • An ounce of wholemeal wisdom
  • A fresh sprig of organic pain
  • Several free range smiles
  • Two eggs
  • An open mind
  • Some freshly picked humility (bottled is ok, if you can’t find fresh)
  • One open heart
  • Half a can of sheer guts, or baked beans, depending on the season

Mix the above ingredients in a large bowl and bake on the top shelf of a hot oven for a decade or two. Season with plenty of sex, laughter and fun, a few tears and some grated cheese. Garnish with cherry tomatoes and parsley.

For maximum pleasure, eat with someone else.

  7. That made me smile. Thank you. I’m hoping after numerous disasters with the wrong ingredients I might currently be using a better recipe and have found the perfect bowl to mix it in.

  9. My Kyle, I am so fortunate to have found you in this vast, sometimes ugly world because you make me smile at least as much and usually more than anyone else I know. (virtually or really)

  14. You forgot to mention that this goes great with coffee. DON’T FORGET THE COFFEE!

    12.06.10 at 19.42

    • how could i have forgotten the coffee – i mean, i’m addicted to the stuff

      12.06.10 at 20.16

  15. How about Jack Daniels, valium and two tons of chocolate! Lol!

    12.06.10 at 19.00

    • well that goes without saying, i guess – well spotted though – thanks

      12.06.10 at 20.16

  16. Seriously, what the hell – do you write in your sleep or do you have 3 sets of hands or do you NOT sleep? You amaze me with how often you write. Is WordPress holding someone hostage if you don’t post? No – you get a BJ for every post! Ok, I figured it out. Thanks for listening but more than that – Thank you for writing!

    12.06.10 at 18.20

    • i’ll be honest, i love writing here, and i love the friends i have found here – sleep is for the puny – i wish i got a blow job for every post, and our friend diirrty did offer, but i would write until my fingers bled just for the chance to even imagine, for a second, that it could be you. in the meantime, i will continue to splatter wordpress with the random spunk of my mind. also… i was thinking of changing my background and header and, knowing how good you are with all that stuff, was wondering if you had any ideas – i’ve smoked way tooo much weed tonight, does it show?

      12.06.10 at 18.35

      • You know what?? I was creating my blog roll and when listing you, I wondered, Mew Tube / you tube or Mew Tube / flesh tube?? crude wondering but you know how you are?? ; ) I love the look you have – the dimension, simple clean strength of black and white – I could play with any ideas you’re considering though.

        12.06.10 at 18.56

  17. Best recipe ever!

    12.06.10 at 18.17

    • there’s always room for improvement though – thanks for your comment sugar

      12.06.10 at 18.25

    I love your recipe. Tailoring it a bit more to my tastes, I’ll substitute the parsley with cilantro. I love cilantro and can get wet from the scent alone. I like a little more heat, so to make things a bit spicy… I’d add something hot, like jalapeno or chili peppers, to kick things up a notch. 😀

    12.06.10 at 18.16

    • cilantro is coriander, right? big fan and as for hot and spicy, whether culinary or metaphorically, then yes, kick it up a notch or two

      12.06.10 at 18.24

      • TemptingSweets99

        Yes fresh coriander! And yes, culinary and metaphorically-speaking – kicking it up a notch or two or three. 😉

    12.06.10 at 17.53

    • glad you do – a little pepper never hurts too – i should have said lol

      12.06.10 at 17.55

      • Oh yea, pepper is good, my mama always said a little pepper was good for the soul lol

        12.06.10 at 18.07

        • your mama was right

          12.06.10 at 18.07
